Cosa dicono gli sviluppatori:

“Melody's Escape is almost feature-complete and is in a very stable state.
During this Early Access period I will focus on polishing the gameplay and aesthetics, and with the help of the community's feedback I will add more features to the game.
The game will also be ported to Mac and Linux, and will get more skins, hair styles and color palettes, as well as a Workshop integration to share your own custom content with the world!

Please note that there is no bundled music yet, so you will need digital music files on your disk to play the game.

Your feedback is very important and welcomed! :) - Loïc

Update v0.8.2: New light orbs and performances fix

Update v0.8.2: New light orbs and performances fix




Game Changes
  • Changed the look of light orbs. The new look should hopefully alleviate the "motion-blur" feeling induced by LCD monitors with high latency, as they have less contrast than the old ones and softer borders.
  • Light orbs explosion in Running intensity now pack a bit more punch.
  • The new in-game sounds now play at the same volume regardless of the movement mode intensity.
  • Fixed an issue with track caching resulting in difficulty mix-ups if a song had been played with "Custom" difficulty settings.
  • The Steam Workshop items checking/downloading screen now only happens once per session, so you can quickly switch skins without waiting if you have a lot of subscriptions. Using the "Go to the Steam Workshop" in-game menu will reset that state and make it check again the next time you visit the "Customize Appearance" menu.

Performance Changes (mostly targeted at lower-end GPUs)
  • Anti-Aliasing on Windows is now slightly faster and toggling the option on/off doesn't require to restart the game anymore.
  • Added "Graphics Quality" presets in the "Performances" option menu, to easily switch between Low/Medium/High.
  • Modified "low FPS" detection (below 50FPS) to interrupt the game and show a warning screen allowing the player to automatically lower graphics quality to gain performance (as the obstacle timing/hitbox suffers when performances are poor and that has quite a negative impact on the gameplay, delaying button/key inputs).
  • Added a "Low FPS" warning label below the heart score during a game if the FPS counter is enabled in the options and the FPS is too low.
  • Added a new system to detect if the GPU drivers launched the game using the integrated GPU on dual-GPUs computers (usually laptops), to suggest to the player to launch the game using the "gaming" GPU instead.
  • Added a global variable to the .exe targeted at NVidia Optimus laptop, to tell to the driver to use the NVidia GPU instead of the integrated one. If you own an Optimus laptop, I would love feedback on whether or not this feature is working!
  • All available GPUs detected are now listed in "log.txt" inside the game's installation folder.
  • Updated the FNA library on Mac and Linux builds.

Update v0.8.1 Sound effects and new skins

Update v0.8.1 Sound effects and new skins



Sound effects and text popups
  • Added in-game sound effects (all are optionals and can be disabled!). By default only "errors" sound effects will play, but you can enable them for all obstacle success and hearts in the "Audio" options menu.
  • Added sound effects and animations for the hearts score animation during the post-track score overview.
  • Added "TOO LATE" error text for failed obstacles which didn't receive their input in time. Pressing the wrong button will instead display "ERROR" (and play a different sound too), so you can distinguish between timing problems and incorrect input.
  • Added a small timer to prevent spamming multiple "ERROR" messages and sound effects when repeatedly pressing incorrect buttons (for visual feedback purposes only, it still resets your score multiplier everytime)
  • Adjusted floating-text popups positions and made their transitions smoother during intensity section changes

Skins
  • Added 2 new skins: "Prototype (Inverted)" and "Black Dress"
  • Modified all default skins to make the "shadows" on the background legs/arms much lighter
  • Added the default hair texture to the sample hairstyle mod folder (it was missing on Windows builds)
  • Updated the "sample skin" texture

Misc Changes
  • Reverted the Running section ground border to "grass", as it was better looking and the alternative didn't help with the "blur" feeling encountered by some players (as I incorrectly assumed it would).

the person who made this game completely understands what makes games fun AND challenging AND relaxing at the same time and that is really really really... uncommon, especially for a game that can maintain these qualities while balancing the correct amount of simplicity vs immersion & replayability as Melody's Escape.

this is my favorite game available on Steam. if i had to delete my entire steam library and could only save 1 game, it would be Melody's Escape.

the game is endlessly replayable, very high quality and incredibly flaw-free for an early access title (at this point i feel like most updates are QoL enhancements as opposed to bugfixes) - also the algorithm for procedural generation based on your music is extremely good. there are certain songs that when i play for the first time in Melody, i am able to score very highly on without looking at the screen, because the algorithm is so accurate that i know when to tap in time with the beat which is NOT the case with many other rhythm games that let you use your own music.

it is 100% worth the hours for your money (EVEN at full price), very easy to customize to your specific preferences, even works with the audio from movie files (i.e AVI files) if you don't have them in another format.

best greenlight game i ever voted 'Yes' on!

please buy this game or gift it to a friend. i would love to see the community for this game grow and for the game itself to have more funds for development. thanks for reading, and enjoy your escape.

Melody's Escape, a brilliant rhythm game which can be a nice into into the rhythm game catagory.

A fairly simple control scheme involving only 4 inputs on the easier difficulties which increases to eight once you move into the harder of the four (excluding the custom difficulty which you are capable of making even harder). Each input has a distinctive colour on the default theme making you able to correspond the colours to the inputs rather than identifying each note individually making long streams not as fearsome as they initially looked.

If you have a large library of music then you are going to have a good time on this game, however for people with mass amounts of songs in a single genre, you might want to be careful about the purchase of this game.

I jumped right into this game with my love of rhythm games and enjoyed it very much until the audio detection was incapable of finding stable tempos in my songs. In my library of 166 songs (This is all from a single genre) I am capable of playing around 25% of them due to the beat detection being unable to find a stable 4/4. The result of the game being unable to find a stable tempo causes it to engage a detection mode which is labeled "Energy Peaks". This detection would be a great work around, provided that it worked consistently throughout an entire song which I have never found to be the case.

When the detection is in "Energy Peaks" mode, it will detect any spike in activity on a song and then place a beat there, for songs with a loud singer; all hell breaks loose on the song making you unable to correctly time your inputs unless you use visual ques rather than audatory cues which is not what you should really have to do in a rhythm game.

Energy Peaks works wonders for instumental songs though so if you are playing songs without singing then you should be able to play them all and not have to deal with bad sync.

The only thing that I feel is missing from this game is a song editor or at least some way you are able to influence how the song is generated. I have found too many songs which will change from sprinting to flying after a chorus rather than during the chorus only to return right back to sprinting after the next verse starts following the bridge from chorus to verse.

So if you have a wide variety of songs then buy this game if you are a fan of rhythm games or if you want to get into them. Although if you have a single genre which you love make sure that your songs have a prominent and stable BPM to prevent Energy Peaks from not properally syncing.

Spectacular Rhythm game I was very happy to purchase! Melody's Escape is a great example of a music game that tries some new things! The ability to customise your player and load up your own music is a great feature.

Something I really like is how the speed of the game, colours, and the eye-catching visuals are based on the tempo and pace of your song, and all the different sections that appear -whether it be flying, floating or diving off a cliff- fits with the mood of the music.

Being an early access game, it isn't quite refined yet, but come the future I hope the game gets even better in terms of a whole bunch of improvements that will really pack the game with a whole lot more.

Packed with a pretty cool workshop that is slowly but steadily growing, there's a lot of ways to stylize Melody to fit your style of play.

I really recommend and can't say anything but good things about it. Great game, hope to see more from it, and it's definitely worth checking out! Get out there and run your troubles away!
